Ruth Cooper wrote to us asking for help with a Yiddish or Russian rhyme that’s a finger game. Here’s her email:
The finger game I am trying to track down has motions that go with it.
The words (from close to 80 years ago) were something like:
Pippa kasa varele,
It’s probably either Russian or Yiddish. I once asked someone Russian, who had no idea (but also did not recognize the finger motions). I’m sure I’m mis-remembering the exact pronunciation.
If anyone can help Ruth, please comment below.
Thanks in advance!
